Unable to contact mirrordirector.aspbian.org

Thu Dec 07, 2017 1:27 pm

Does this mean maintenance or misbehaviour is happening at the org, or could it be a problem with a pi?

I'm getting a load of these while trying to update/upgrade this particular pi, and install spe and some other software. I've had this before, but everything appeared to work fine a couple of hours later. That leads me to believe it isn't a problem at my end, but I thought I'd check.

Thanks.

It more likely means your keyboard is broken.

It's https://mirrordirector.raspbian.org [with an arrrr]

If that doesn't route to a sensible mirror server then take a look at https://raspbian.org/RaspbianMirrors to find a local mirror that does work. You can hard code it into your /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.list files (as a temporary work-around).

Except when this sort of thing happens, the mirror list is also often offline as well. Try a google cache of the page.

My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?
